Tips for Living Well
Nourish: Feed your skin from the inside out. Your skin is a reflection of what you put into your body. Eat a well-balanced diet with foods high in antioxidants, and drink plenty of healthy fluids to stay hydrated.
Move: Exercise regularly but don’t go for the burn. Regular exercise is crucial to overall health, but excessive exercising can sometimes irritate the skin so don’t overdo it. And always remember to protect your skin with an SPF of at least 15 when exercising outdoors.
Rest: Get quality sleep to rejuvenate the skin. Your body and mind need proper rest and so does your skin! Find your ideal sleep zone (ideal number of hours you need to look and feel your best) and try to maintain that amount of sleep each night.
Relax: De-stress to boost skin healing. Stress and worry show up on your skin. To try and relax, identify your skin’s stress symptoms and create a “to do” list of your daily responsibilities. Cross those items off the list as you go.
Super-Saturate: Moisturize properly to quench your skin’s thirst. Once you have identified your particular skin type; dry, oily, normal or normal combination, follow a consistent skin care routine every day. Cleanse, tone, moisturize and protect your skin from the sun, exfoliate regularly and treat yourself to a healing mask for your skin type. Add a night cream to your regimen—you will notice the difference.
Pamper: Become spa savvy for wellness and balance. Treat yourself by booking some pampering time at a spa. Or if you can’t get to one, bring the spa experience home by creating a serene place where you can relax and rejuvenate. Light some candles and play soothing tunes while you soak in the tub. And don’t forget to turn the phone off!
Radiate: Combat specific skin problems…at any age. To keep your skin youthful and radiant, take care of common problems when they first appear, like small lines and wrinkles or freckles. Begin with simple steps such as using a moisturizer daily and introducing a light eye cream to your routine. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and—take care of it!
